Tropical Storm Nicole Serves It Up

Venue: Slaughter Beach, Delaware

Secured the insurance sesh on the 4.7
then quickly re-rigged to my 4.2 wave vogue
RRD wave Vogue 4.2
cool graphics huh!
the 4.2 was just right :)
Amazing-rigging a half meter smaller sail made all the difference. I was dialed.
Love my twin fin-works awesome as a bump-n-jump board
Slaughter is hands down epic in a Southeast Gale
ramps line up perfectly
for big air
Touch down. Cool thing about the twin fins is you never spin out. Ever.
the twin is so loose
and gybes so smooth
ramps were perfect-both starboard or port
see the Ghost ship on the horizon
oh yeah
all day long

amazing thing is they were predicting 7 inches of rain
I hit the water at 11am, and it didn't start raining until I was unrigged and packing up at 3.30.
Finally, a good looking strectch of wind. Next 5 days looks to be windy. Stoked!

Delmarva Board Sport Adventures, your mid-Atlantic source for quality RRD Stand Up Paddle Boards and Windsurfing gear, is now taking orders to purchase its 2010 demo fleet of Stand Up Paddle boards.

In this economy, we choose to keep our overhead low and our business model streamlined.  This means great prices and unparalleled customer service for you! We choose to not get bogged down with flip flops, board shorts and lip balm.  We, instead, focus on Stand Up Paddle Boards and Windsurfing Gear and spending time on the water with our customers. 

We have lots of quality RRD 2010 paddle boards available from our demo fleet. Get your deposit down now to reserve your Paddle Board, and take TAX FREE delivery (in Delaware) this weekend.

While others were trying to copy what we do, we took SUP mainstream on the DelMarVa peninsula.

If you live in Wilmington, Lewes, Rehoboth, Dewey Beach, Bethany Beach, Fenwick Island, Ocean City, Annapolis, Kent Island, or ANYWHERE in Delaware, Maryland, Virginia or even Pennsylvania, get in touch with us here to get your a smokin hot deal on a 2010 demo board!

The first SUP shape introduced in 2009 remains a reference board for entry level programs and a very versatile shape for both flat water and waves. Well-balanced and stable thanks to its 31” of width; the standup eleven softskin is now also available in the convertible technology.

The WASSUP line
These are designed first an foremost as stable and versatile paddle boards, but windsurfers are just as impressed with these boards as paddlers are. Two sizes are available with footstraps for great flat-water fun or real light wind wave sailing action and each size is available with a center fin, making them great choices for light wind windsurfing and even beginners.  Rave reviews at flat water and wave windsurf demos and wave paddle demos prove that RRD is on to something here.

The Diamond line
While RRD designed these boards with wave riding in mind, they still provide excellent glide thanks to a flatter mid section and generous width in the front. Efficient paddling in flat water or when speeding up to catch a wave, but step back and the thin, narrow tail provide very impressive wave riding characteristics.

We also have close out windsurfing gear available for sale.

More Pics From The Ocracoke Sesh

Headin out
nice to have power to jump when you need to
see that gull in the foreground :)
couple of turns on this.....
.....this one was about to become a monster closeout
over mast high-and running for the clearing
Charlie (or Jim) Myers was out in front of me, hooting and hollering. I was running from that closeout!

more hits when the wave reforms on the inner bar
these where the longest wave rides I'd EVER had. Several were 7-8 bottom and top turns.
I was just trying to sneak away unscathed, with no broken gear, or body parts. I succeeded.

The Hatteras locales, on the other hand, where putting on a show:
Charlie Myers

Keith McCulloch

Caleb Jacobs

so yeah, I'll be chasing this day for years to come. I'll never be same after that sesh
